No they arne't. Mortars have a much smaller warhead than an artillery shell, and they're generally fused to explode on contact with the ground. Artillery can be fused to explode above the ground and shower a target with shrapnel. The advantages of mortars is that they can be used close in, and carried by one or two soldiers.

That's not to dismiss mortars- I love the things. They aren't more powerful than artillery, though.

Mortars have proximity fuses now(explode when it is close and not any contact) and artillery what I meant mortars is come in closer to 90 degrees of impact than artilery does so more shrapnel gets dispersed. Artillery is steep angle so 1/4-1/3 gets imbedded in the ground. And yea I know artillery can go alot further and have some large shells but giving a mortars size.

When a mortar shell explodes over the ground, it has far more 'downwards' velocity, hence shrapnel has less chance to expand laterally before it strikes the ground. An artuillery shell comes in at an angle, and the geometry is such taht the shrapnel covers a significantly larger area in a cone that extends from the explosion outwards in the same difrection as flight.

both are devastating if used properly, but the geometery of an artilly shell gives it more lethality. Mortars are useful for their portability and ease of use.

I think we should make a semi auto C3 with a cyclone feed that can be used to snipe with a three foot neon colored barrel and a paint bayonet you can use to stab paint on people!

i got and idea... we can use the paint shot gun by getting a can of spray paint, stand 15 feet away, and hold down the top part, it has a scatter effect

I dunno man... The spray paint doesn't have an adjustable velocity, you might get in trouble for firing hot. The spray's brilliant though.

Maybe instead we could mount a super-soaker full of water with food dye underneath the barrel using Weaver rails.

just pack a cluster bomb full of paintballs, launch it and when it flies over the ennemy down goes 6000 paintballs while afterwards the guy hopes that something slightly unpleasant happens to you like an onion falling on your head.

It could work, but you'd need a marker that could feed balls while you hold it sideways.
